in the weather center this morning for rick reichmuth. quite a doozie of a storm in new york. >> i wouldn't go that far. not that huge of a deal across the northeast. many people used to dealing with the snowfall. the big deal with the storm is that we just got hit with one about a day ago and now having to deal with more snowfall here. some places picked up 20 inches of snow on thursday and with that snow storm that produced even some tornadoes across parts of the south and yet again dealing with more snow here in many of those areas. parts of illinois picked up a foot with that last system now looking at more snowfall from the storm. the worse of it winding down in indiana. basically on the warm side of the system we have showers and thunderstorms. areas of heavy rain across northern florldz and eastern carolinas that should be moving out very shortly. you will be drying out. head northbound temperatures are cold enough. ohio have you been dealing with that snowfall throughout the entire overnight hours. pennsylvania and upstate, new york already seeing that snowfall moving on in. as far as
four individuals have been placed on administrative leave pending further action. but, the "new york post" is now reporting that eric bosswell has not resigned and all four of those stated department employees are still on the state department's payroll. >> just shifted the deck chairs and they want to make the american people believe that the state department has held people accountable for their lack of security and sending help to four brave americans. this is incredibly inept of the state department to think that they can continue to fool the american public, pathetic. >> reporter: we've reached out to the state department for further comment but they have not yet denied or clarified any of this. jon? jon: hillary clinton obviously runs the state department. she is on her way out. john kerry, the nominee to replace her. is this going to affect his confirmation hearings at all? >> reporter: jon, the state department says at their end they're trying to keep things as smooth as possible. >> secretary clinton as you heard her say before has pledged to have a smooth transition with he
york city, for instance. >> dave: new jersey, connecticut. >> clayton: you're not living the dream. >> juliet: it's sort of subjective. well, actually not subjective you can look exactly at what people live here for 250 or people in san francisco, another expensive city, it doesn't go that long, didn't go that far. >> dave: the bottom line, it appears they've moved the goal post and it may be around the $400,000 mark and that may be the new 250 if you will. may be where ne get the deal done. and upwards towards the 500 mark, but here are two congressmen on perhaps moving this up. >> the $400,000 level seems to me to be about right, that represents about the top 1% of the income earners, the people who got 93% of the income growth our last year and that seems to be enough, but i think there's some flexibility there. >> it's about making sure that we can live within our means and address the real problem and that's spending. i kind of feel like i'm a lifeguard and we've got to save as many people from drowning in higher taxes as we can. >> clayton: that seems to be the new threshold
for their own political short term. >> "new york times" is talking about the urgency issue in all of this, and lacking urgency that we have witnessed. they say, yeah, with days left before the fiscal punch lands, both sides are exhibiting little sense of urgency. rather than to foster progress. perry is that the biggest thing, the primaries moving out of this and how everything looks back? >> i think there are two things going on. the first is democrats generally feel they won a man dade. they're not backing down -- the second thing is the primary issue. you have members of congress say last week there was a proposal to raise taxes, and a lot of republicans said i can't vote for that, a million only tax increase. they were worried about primaries. that's driving this in a very strong way. >>> there are people in washington, d.c. that will tell us this is how it all happens. congressman tom cole appeared with luke russert on "the daily rundown." i want to play what he had to say. >> he had the complete support of everybody for plan b, and so this is a tactical debate and discussion, it's n
in close touch and follow this. thank you. >>> in new york, police have a woman in custody in connection with a case of the man pushed to his death from a subway platform in that city. police had targeted a woman who looked like this police sketch, a heavy set woman in her 20s caught on a security camera running away after that attack on thursday. david aristo is live in new york with the latest developments on this, and pretty quick work here, wasn't it? >> seems to be. they have this woman in custody right now because that she had implicated herself, the statement we got from chief of police department spokesman paul brown. and this is a case that certainly has rocked new york. this is the second time this has taken place within the month of december. it's something that doesn't happen all that often here in new york. 8.5 million people in the city and many, many people take the subway. so to have something like this take place, you would think it's got the city in sort of a tizzy. this thing happened in queens. the woman was walking back and forth. it's not clear if the one that they
far this season. in new york city itself, this is not a big storm. it looks like one to three inches. the roads because it hasn't been all that cold so far this season should be under control. then you go back up into new york state. there will be pockets of heavier snow with about sick x to nine inches possible. same for northern pennsylvania. there will be spots that pick up higher snowfall totals. this is not a huge event, we're not talking about a lot of wind with this system, but it does still look like parts of southern new england will pick up most of the snow from the system. carl? >> thanks. we'll get to the national forecast in a few minutes. >>> meantime, lawmakers in washington are desperately trying to reach a deal on the fiscal cliff today, hoping to avoid steep spending cuts and tax increases. kristin welker is at the white house where the president had a high-profile meeting with congressional lawmakers on friday. good morning. >> reporter: carl, good morning to you. all eyes are on the senate this morning as majority leader harry reid and minority leader mcconnell tr
" is the headline in "the wall street journal." host: that story from inside "usa today." this is from "the new york times." host: there is this from "roll call." pessimistic asstima ever. the president summoning congressional leaders. we expect there will be a stakeout afterward. we may hear from the president and we will be following all of that as the day unfolds. it's begin with david lightman. he covers capitol hill and the white house. the best sense of what you think the dynamics will be inside the room at the 3:00 p.m. meeting. guest: for all this talk of pessimism and optimism, the only people that know are the five principles in that room and i think that is important. they are all seasoned negotiators. they went to the debt ceiling stuff a year and a half ago. i think there will make an honest effort to get this thing resolved. i am not as pessimistic as others. we have seen this go to the brink before. why would you give up anything until you have to is the old saw. you have to be braced for an anything. host: the president is getting higher taxes if we go over the cliff and he can go ba
. just outside new york city a southwest jet got stuck in the mud after skidding off the runway. in some of the hardest hit area the roads are even worse. >> i lost count of number of cars in the ditch. a jackknifed tractor trailer and a horse trailer turned over. >> i have seen ten cars in an accident. i saw a lexus fly into the ditch. >> i wish people would slow down a little bit, you know. it is pretty slick. >> harris: the storm will go into the his tor the history br leaving behind a path of destruction from a tornado jut broke in the south to a record snowfall in arkansas that katipoer to hundreds of homes and businesses. some still without tonight. officials shay could be the situation for up to a week. meanwhile, heavy snow still falling across parts of the northeast even as people are already starting to dig out. straight to anna koiman live in pennsylvania. the conditions there? >> i can tell you that the death toll has crept up to 16 as a result of the storm that began wreaking havoc on christmas day in the midwest and the south and winter storm warnings remain in effect in no
weapons out of the hands of criminals and dangerous folks. >>gregg: new york mayor issued a statement calling the proposal a "shameful evasion of the crisis facing our country." james has the news live from washington, dc. james, as fox reported this week, the n.r.a. sought to broaden the we dialogue beyond gun control? >>reporter: in bushing back against the gun control lobby, he launched a defense of gun ownership asking why we sanction the use of guns do protect politicians in sports stadium but not our school children and at the same time he offered a searing indictment of violent movies and video games and the corporations that profit. >> isn't fantasizing about killing people as a way to get your kicks, isn't that really the filthest form of pornography in a race to the bottom, they compete with each other to shock, violate, and offend every standard of civilized society by bringing in more toxic mix of reckless behavior and criminal cruelty right into our homes. >>reporter: he was interrupted by protesters. >>gregg: there is no common ground between the two sides; there? >>repo
, people should check that out. they should get engaged and involved. i saw an ad in one of the new york papers asking people to sign up. this issue is not going away. we, as a country, damn well better figure out how to do more than one thing at a time. fiscal cliff? very important. public safety and gun violence? very important. getting people back to work in america? very important. we can actually do more than one thing at a time. mayors across the country do that every day. >> well said. thank you very much, mayor michael nutter. happy new year to you, sir. up next, the best political movies of the year. i love this segment, of course. and this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> welcome back to "hardball." this is a big time of year to catch up on the movies you missed this year. we've seen a lot of movies with political themes this year. here to discuss them is new york magazine film critic, david edelstein. there's a lot of politics in movies this year, especially "lincoln." let's take a look at the film, a piece of it. >> please, first common notion is this. things which
ohio and western pennsylvania and western new york state. rain through the carolinas and virginia. most of washington, d.c. area. you can see the winter storm warnings and advisories all throughout the northeast, throughout the day. this whole storm system is going to track just to the southeast of martha's vineyard and nantucket in massachusetts. the coldest side of the storm will move through boston, back through northern rhode island and into northern connecticut as well. that's why that's an area that will see most of the snowfall. picking up in intensity across pennsylvania and also back up to syracuse as well. wider view of our snouf estimates shows a widespread swath of 3 to 6 inches. in the boston area, we should pick up a few inches before it tries to mix with rain. the outer areas of cape cod should mix with rain. you go inland a bit. 3 to 6 inches could end up with seven or eight inches as well this is a southern new england snowstorm. we'll basically pick up two to four inches out of this storm. t.j. >> dylan, thank you so much. i want to turn to the legal fallout from the s
's acc e accused of luring in and shooting new york firefighters. and a strike that would have crippled business has been overted for now. both sides agree to a one-month contract extension. back to "hardball." >> welcome back to hardball. the tragic school shooting has put renewed focus not just on the give ups, but on school safety itself. >> i call on congress today to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation. and to do it now. >> but here's what it looks like when you run the numbers. slate magazine took a look at what a program to put armed guards in every school might cost. there's nearly a hundred thousand public schools and the average police officer makes about $55,000 a year. so a lowball estimate would be about 5.4 billion tlars a year. what can we really do to keep our children safe from guns? good question. joining me now experlt, mie michael nutter of philadelphia and eugene robinson. mayor nutter, thank you so much for joining me. you're on the front line every time there's a homicide in philad
leader harry reid in the "new york times, returning to the u.s. capitol. his shadow. what's the relationship between harry reid and mitch mcconnell? guest: it's hard to tell. the rhetoric on the senate floor can be pretty tough. they call each other my dear friend whenever you want them on the c-span channels, but i think they both are in a frustrating position. senator harry reid does not have more than 60 members, so we cannot block a filibuster but senator mcconnell is adept at applying in cases where he'd want to block legislation. but i think they both have respect for each other's legislative skills and they have proven in the past that when they need to cut a deal, but can cut a deal and bring their party's members with them. host: john mccain writes a big budget deal is still worth doing. he points out to the history of some of these agreements, most notably with ronald reagan in the 1980's and president bush in 1991 in which republicans agreed to spending cuts that never happened while raising taxes. guest: that's right. there's a little confusion about how much s

, laura montgomery as well as political writer for "the new york times," john harwood. you heard kelly mention some republicans weren't feeling the president's interview on "meet the press" this morning. they took issue with it. from that interview and what you saw this morning, what did you take from the president's appearance? >> i think the president understands he's got the high ground in the negotiations having won re-election and campaigning on higher taxes on people making more than $250,000 a year and knowing that as of january 1st, if nothing happens in congress, most taxes are going to go up across the board and propose a tax cut. he knows he has an advantage. it's a limited advantage. there's a downside to him, too. there's market reaction, loss of confidence in the united states. there's the mess of having to go back and deal with the sequester of those across the board cut that is nobody wants and dealing with taxes. the president, everybody is trying to avoid a headache. the question is, how does the cube get twisted around so everybody believes they have an outcome that
damage to new york, new jersey, connecticut and it's up to lawmakers in the house to approve a bill covering the cost of reconstruction. they're working on this while they're working on the fiscal cliff. why this deal may not happen next. obviously a lot of attention tonight on the fiscal cliff. we're inside 30 hours until the expiration date on tax cuts. there are other important bits of business on capitol hill before the end of the year. in other words, in the next 30 hours or so. on friday, the senate approved a more than $60 billion bill to pay for construction costs for superstorm sandy. you see the video of that here. the house still needs to vote on that legislation. it isn't clear yet what the house is going to do. molly henneberg is live in d.c. there's a holdup in the house. what is it? >> the price tag. house republicans say it's too steep. a south carolina republican congressman said he and others want to help the people hurt by sandy but lawmakers need to figure out where the money's going to come from. >> it's not paid for. i know that's a difficult conversation to ha
of the firefighters shot and killed in the ambush on upstate new york on christmas eve. holding back tears at the funeral for wes webster, a volunteer firefighter, mike, he and a firefighter were shot and killed while responding to a house fire. two other firefighters wounded in that. before the shooting, william spankler, jr. was spot and killed by police, i should say after. and he was a convicted murderer and set a trap for the first responders and then shot them as they were trying to put out the fire. holiday travelers running into an electorate of problems this weekend after two powerful winter storms swept across the nation. people across the country still dealing with that and now we're looking ahead to new year's eve. your holiday forecast is coming up. first, we go back to washington, capitol hill and talk with a republican lawmaker whers stand right now. he's in all of this. he can give us firsthand information on this fiscal cliff. stay close. when some people struggle with their mortgage payments, they become frozen, petrified. not knowing what to do, they do nothing, but the
